Food That Spoils Too Quickly

There are some things that we buy at the supermarket that always seem to go bad before we can finish them. Paul has the problem with sour cream, and so do we (although using non-dairy sour cream helps because it lasts longer). Cucumbers are another item that always seem to go rotten before we can use them… if we buy two, we’ll use one but the second will go bad. If we only buy one, we’ll only get halfway through it before it starts to mold.

What foods go bad on you before you can finish them off?

Loaves of bread! I need them for my grilled cheese, but I can't possibly get through 10+ grilled cheeses before the bread goes bad. Why can't they sell something like a short stack?"

Or why don't you eat other things besides Grilled Cheese? They have tuna fish, or pb&j.

anything that gets put in the vegetable bin, I ALWAYS seem to forget--most recently grapes, strawberries, plums ... one time the potatos in there sprouted through the plastic bag!

Monica -- Have you ever smelled potatoes that have *really* gone rotten? Shortly after we moved, we had a potato in the back of our pantry (not sure how it go there) and it went bad. It took us two days to figure out where the stench was coming from and what it was... it smelled, seriously, like cat feces. Unbelievably strong cat feces.

Don't ever let your potatoes get to that stage!

Ew, that makes my nose cringe! I'm not sure if that would happen in the fridge.
I actually planted the ones that sprouted, too. I didn't bother to dig to find out exactly how many I got, because the garden I had then was pretty dinky (bad soil, not good sun), but I did find one small potato. There probably weren't many more. I left it on the counter for a while, but it never got eaten. True to form :-P

Dave: Put your bread in the fridge or freezer. It will keep longer all you have to do is warm it up/thaw it and you're set to go, no mold, no fuss.

Milk is my problem. I'll be 3/4 of the way through a gallon and I find that suddenly, I have melk.

Bah. I hate bread that's been put in the fridge. Sure, it lasts longer but it loses it's fresh texture and flavor.
